Microsoft Exchange 2007 Agent Logs

Unfortunately, the logging for the rejected or deleted messages in Exchange Server 2007 is a bit poor.

There is a set of commands that may help examining the log:
  • Display the log for the specific period:
    Get-AgentLog -StartDate “4/16/2007″ -EndDate “4/17/2007″
    Get-AgentLog -StartDate “4/17/2007 8:00 AM” -EndDate “4/17/2007 2:00 PM”
  • Filtering in order to show messages to a particular recipient:
    Get-AgentLog -StartDate “4/16/2007″ -EndDate “4/17/2007″ | where {$_.recipients -like “foo@yourdomain.com”}
  • To search for messages from a particular sender:
    Get-AgentLog -StartDate “4/16/2007″ -EndDate “4/17/2007″ | where {$_.P1FromAddress -like “aqe@easymoney2u.com” -or $_.P2FromAddresses -like “aqe@easymoney2u.com”}
There are more commands, that can help you filter the log for the agent or the host IP address and other stuff.
